Okavango Delta

This stunning and unique wetland area is formed by the Okavango River flowing into the Kalahari Desert. It creates the distinctive oasis known as the Okavango Delta.

Comprising of thousands of tiny islands, some solely made of small salt planes too salty to support plants, around 70% of the islands were originally termite mounds, however they now serve as land for wildlife.

Being a rarity in that it is one of the only sources of water available for animals and wildlife in day light hours means that it attracts thousands of animals. This creates a particularly special opportunity for observing many different animals, birdlife and fish.

The Okavango Delta can be explored in some rather exciting ways - on foot, in a game drive vehicle or in a Mokoro to delve into life in the floodwaters. However you decide to experience this wondrous oasis, it really is sure to be the trip of a lifetime.
